Snow Fun

The kids spent a few days at my parents house. Cooper really enjoyed playing in their backyard in the snow.

Note to Grandpop Bill, this is what I should be dressed like when I go outside to play in the snow.

Please don't let me outside barefoot again, that wasn't funny!!!

Holiday Show

I got this one short video. It would have been better and longer, but as you can see this darn lady totally blocks my shot!

Quinn's Holiday Show

Quinn did great this year! He sat in the sled and danced. I thought I got good video of it, but it didn't work :(

Sorry the pictures aren't great, but you get the idea. Quinn and his class were snowflakes!

Great Things!

I just had to share all the great things Cooper has been doing lately. He is talking a lot more! He is using words without being prompted a lot. When he drinks everything in his cup or takes the cracker bag out of the box he will say "empty". When I cook something in the microwave, he points to it and says "microwave". He will sometimes just run around the house and lable things! When his pizza is too hot, he touches it and says "hot, too hot." I gave him a pickle the other day and he said "Yummy....Cold!" It goes on and on, he is just saying so many neat things!

They have been working on him with Big/Little in school, at home therapy, and speech therapy. Tonight he walked over to the side by side refridgerator, pointed to the fridge part and said "Big" then pointed to the freezer part and said "little"! Yup, our fridge is slightly bigger than our freezer side!

He totally shocked me today by pulling me over to the steps and saying "Go Potty"! I took him up and he sat happily on the potty, but didn't go :( Still, I am shocked he did that, we haven't even been working on potty training at all! Even when we were he never ever asked to go!

I give almost all the credit for this amazing progress to his new at home therapist. She is amazing, she is also always really late. It drives me nuts, but if she can make my baby talk I will put up with anything!!!

Cooper trying on Daddy's shoes.

Those are some big shoes to fill!

Cooper's new favorite thing is to climb into the laundry basket with his blankies.

This is new, he has started putting stickers on his face. As long as it isn't on my new sofa I am happy! :)

Pumpkin Farm Trip

On the bus on the way to the farm.

Cooper couldn't wait to feed the goats! The lady with the food was taking too long so he grabbed a handful of grass and started feeding them :)

He really liked this little house.

And the slide, of course.

So cute!

Cooper loves running in circles around this big cake in a gazebo, don't ask me why.

So excited about the giant lollypop!

My little elf :)

He sat all alone on the hayride like a big boy!

He was really not interested in the pumpkins though.

He found one that was open and thought that was interesting :)

Cooper really liked being on the boat.

Grandpa Don and Quinn enjoying the ride.

Cooper and Grandpop Bill on the bow.

Quinn's favorite part was all the rope!

All the boys went swimming off the boat.

Cooper loved it!

So did Quinn!

After swimming in the bay you need a shower, Cooper loved that too!

Quinn even loved playing on the sofa below decks, he is such a sweetie :)

Not the State Fair....

We couldn't find anywhere to park at the state fair, so we went to a nearby playground instead.

An action shot of Cooper, he had a great time running around. Notice Quinn in the background licking the bench...this is my life people!

He is a real cutiepie when he wants to be though.

Cooper taking an alphabet break.

This kid really walks to the beat of his own drum, he kept going under this bridge instead of over it :)

Our New Sofa

Here is a picture of our new sofa! Biggest birthday present I ever got :)

Cooper's new favorite place is my bed. Which is really good because he used to be afraid to go in our room:)

He likes the new sofa a lot too!

Quinn approves!
